First of its kind school breaks ground in Stevenston
October 2 2019
Morrison Construction has commenced work on a combined £30m Additional Support Needs School and a Respite and Residential facility in Stevenston, North Ayrshire, described as being the first of its type in Scotland.
Designed by Norr Architects with Hub South West the unique facility will provide places for 200 young people and provide a wealth of facilities ranging from a swimming pool and sensory spaces to external classrooms. Health and social care practitioners will also be accommodated on-site with their own first-aid, therapy and treatment facilities.
North Ayrshire councillor John Bell commented: “The ASN school is going to be much more than bricks and mortar. It’s going to provide an environment which will make a huge difference to the learning experience and lives of children and young people
“Being adjacent to Auchenharvie Academy, we are sure the campus will create exciting opportunities for joint working and learning between the school communities. The design of the school is stunning, providing lots of open spaces for young people to learn and thrive.”
Work is now taking place to prepare the foundations with completion anticipated by 2020.
